why I won't watch equestria girls

by
I got into my little pony because I wanted to see magical talking horses living in a magical, fantasy world of mythos and lore and their unique take on everyday life in a seeming utopia (with hooves)

when you take away horses and magic and etc from my little pony, you get a bad schoolgirl anime (even though that’s redundant, cause like, they all are) and there is nothing special about it, just yet another girly-girl toon

plus it doesn’t help how there was no ‘catch’ in the trailer AT ALL, what is the point of her going there in the first place, other than to make new toys for hasbro? everything seemed so forced from when she went in to seeing the alternate universe friends and especially the *barf* helping-hand guy

yes I am well aware it’s a spinoff… just like starfox adventures was a spinoff, and the people who judged it before it was released were totally wrong to do so, right?

it’s just a bad anime with a pony skin over it, nothing more, and I won’t be incorrect in saying so

I am going to hold on to my superior tastes instead of watching an animated fanfic thanks

Since its just 1 movie thing, i will probably watch it online out of boredom and curiosity.

It's an entire HOUR LONG MOVIE?

*projectile vomits everywhere*

There is literally nothing charming about the animation for a movie. If they actually WANTED to portray the characters as their human counterparts of the characters from FiM, then why not just do it live action? I mean it's already a goddamn teen school drama, so why not just not bother with an art style that just isn't fit for movies and go the whole nine yards?
Besides if actors with REAL body shapes (and not Hollywood stick figures) were hired not only would it do good for those who have low-self esteem but also it would make not dressing up as a pony in real life and simply having FiM inspired clothing become canon and in my mind that would be ok.

UGH ok sorry for ranting I just needed to get that out of my system. Sorry about that. :<

Is there some evidence of that? Because I keep hearing it, and you know what? That doesn't make sense.

An hour long movie to launch a spin-off series makes far more sense, and is far more likely.

Aww, Azumanga Daioh is pretty great.

Anyway, can't say I have an opinion.  I admit I kind of like the MLP episodes I've seen, and should probably watch more, but I'm definitely not as invested in the series as some people are.

i agree with the trailer showing no catch. all i got from that was celestia makes twilight go, and lives in the world, and wants to win a crown, because its a crown, i wont judge it right away, but im not interested in it.

Unless they find a alt Twi or she gets split or or the very unlikly event she'll decide to leave her best friends and stay in that alt world...I don't see how this could be a spinoff unless...Sunset....BUT ANYWAYS I may watch it if it ever gets online but until then, fear of the unknown...

Well, hopefully the kiddies will enjoy it.

Well, that sounds pretty pretentious of you and some people could take that last sentence the wrong way but I could understand your feelings on the subject.

It's funny that they say they are "responding to the desires" of their fans, when really they're tossing them aside in favor of a completely different target audience. You're right. It looks like a totally generic school girl cartoon. There's nothing MLP about it except for the aesthetic. A major theme of the big MLP community seems to be the escapism aspect of the show's lore, and when you take out the fantasy and the MAGIC of the cartoon, you're taking out what initially drew in a big part of the audience and replacing it with mundane aesthetics.

I know this is just a spin off thing, but it bugs the shit out of me that they have a storyline anchored into the regular world of Equestria that'll make this movie canon to the original show. It also breaks my heart that some generic piece of shit like this gets a chance at a movie before the original variant of the ever popular show does.

*cough cough* not that I watch the show, of course >.> it's for girls.

Hey, Starfox: Adventures was never intended to be a real spinoff and as a game it wasn't terrible, the mistake they made was when durring production decided to make it a starfox game by throwing Fox in there but leaving the formula the same for gameplay. Had they left the focus on Krystal, game wouldn't be as hated as it is now both cause if is typical damsel in distress story and cause they thought players wouldn't like playing a female hero.

As for the Equestria Girls thing, yeah, well what do you expect, supposedly its made by the people that did Johnny Test so it was doomed to be messier and smellier than the outhouse after all you can eat cherrychanga/cherrychanga night in appleloosa.

I know starfox adventures isn't a terrible game, I think it's fairly decent, but not for being starfox

what makes it worse for equestria girls is that they thought this was a good idea from the beginning unlike the starfox skin

I must agree. When I looked at the trailer, I had to roll my eyes as it's dropped the "fun for everyone" and focusing on some teen girly drama.

The cookie cutter random "handsome nice guy" was the nail in the coffin for me while looking at the trailer, bad enough Spike was turned into a damn mutt so that he has no chance in hell of getting with any Rarity.

I'll watch it because its a cartoon and i love cartoons. that and I have faith the staff will make it funny. will it be a great plot? will it portray the personalities we love in our fave technicolor ponies? probably not but hey it'll be free to see this fall so save your bits and wait for TV release.

besides we get spike as a dog instead of fluttershy and its had me loling about futashy. I seriously can not watch that trailer with out thinking futashy.

My main problem is the theme. Girls (and/or boys) in highschool. Right, because we needed yet another one of those types of stories.
However I will probably check it out. But unless they can pull something very new and creative I doubt it will be worth to watch.

It makes no sense because the original MLP characters aren't in school. They're young adults.

This is the end of something wonderful.

In short: You won't see it because you're sane.

Eh, i'll just wait for the DVD. It has no connection to the canon of the show, so I truely don't care much one way or another. Although, I gotta admit, humanized Scootaloo doing the chicken dance was cute.

You missed the laser/magical thing in the trailer,

Also it can be good and I will watch it

I can definitely see your point of view.

Yeah. But don't you see this could have the same effect as the ponies? If you close your mind to this show because its looks "girly" aren't you doing the same thing that people do to mlp? Give it a chance man.
Lamia

except... it being 'girly' is not its only barrier of interest or taste unlike MLP as a whole

So are you trying to say this doesn't look interesting and it only looks girly? I think you're just proving my point.
Lamia
5 years, 6 months ago
that wasn't what I said

I said that there's more problems with it than just being 'girly'
UnderCoverBrony

Of course, its a spin off. There's the freaking zero percent body fat problem that all of the characters have and then theres like you said the helping hand guy who will of course be the object of twilights desire and the envey of tween fans of the show. But im sure its got some redeeming qualities, like i said i saw some promise in it. Just gotta give it a chance

The general premise is not even that bad (princess from another dimension hunting a thief while posing as a schoolgirl), but the execution... I'd prefer a gilloutine, quick and painless.

I'm not gona watch it either. If I want to watch moeblob crap then I'd just watch a proper anime which succeeds in doing so.
